My shop is much different today than it was when I started making videos over 12 years ago. So today, I give you my shop tour from 2009, and some storage and organization ideas that I used back when I worked out of a much smaller space.
I’ve received a lot of requests for a tour of my new shop space over the last couple of years. I’ve finally gotten around to putting one together, so in today’s video, I take you on a tour of the new space.
On today’s show, I discuss woodworking in a small corner of the house/apartment, old woodworking books, auger bit lead screw pitch, and the basics of designing your own projects.
On today’s show, I discuss workbench vises, four squaring lumber with hand planes, insulating basement walls, preventing sagging bookshelves, and shooting boards and planes.
On today’s show, I discuss lead screws on auger bits, single vs. double iron wooden planes, stair saws, and considerations when setting up a new workshop.
On today’s show, I discuss a method for ensuring that large workbench leg mortises are square, controlling rust on items that can’t be stored in a tool chest, saw wrests, and and proper use of reference surfaces.
How small of a space can you really work with?
On today’s show, I discuss hand planing vs. sanding before finishing, shoulder planes, working with long stock, side hung drawers, and moving your shop.
On today’s show, I discuss multiple irons for a try/jointer plane, clarifications on the fore plane, tips for planing square board edges, building a stand alone shop, and hammer veneering.
On today’s show, I discuss wood choices for tool boxes, traditional joinery methods for joining the corners of casework, dovetailing the corners of a box with angled sides, and lighting in the workshop.
